Thank you Daniel, you are probably right.

Here is a link to specimen from Heritage auction - graded MS64 - this may help.

Thanks for the link Rok. In all honesty, I don't know if the MS-64 and MS-65 are legitimate grades, or just a handjob to get more money. Maybe it's a little of both. In any case, I go simply go by XF, AU or Unc. for the higher grades. It's simpler that way. Again this is just my opinion.

I am interested in the legend
k?ashevina Shrna Gora -- is that right? 

CRNA GORA is the modern name for Montenegro, so I assume this means
"Kingdom of White Mountain."

I am pretty good at languages, but this has me stumped.

Mike,
  Montenegro was a principality prior to 1910,when Prince Nicholas became King Nicholas I of Montenegro.

In both Montenegrin & Serbian,the word for 'Prince' is 'Knyaz',& 'King' is 'Kral'.

Have a read here; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_I_of_Montenegro .

crna = negro = black (not white)

Rok,
  The name 'Montenegro' is in itself derived from either Italian or the Venetian language.
